Gotta say, I am loving the new packaging for all the Melt Art products by Ranger. It looks so edgy and cool.  While at CHA I studied every square inch of the Ranger booth looking at all the incredible products.

One of the make n takes taught by Debbie Tlach was creating this really cute ring you can see on Ranger’s blog… click here for that link and here for the step by step instructions. Great minds do think alike as I too loved Tim’s rose button from his Fanciful Flower button collection and made the very same mold using Ranger’s Mold-n-Pour back in January. His rose button is the perfect size for a ring or charm for a necklace. I used a simple silver ring base on mine because Ansley is a simple kinda jewelry person.

So I thought it would be fun to show you some of the different things I created using the same Fanciful Flower button and some vintage buttons I had on hand. You all are going to want to make these they are so much FUN!

I created these using the Clear UTTE and some of the other colors. I believe the blue and fuchsia colors have been discontinued but don’t quote me on that… the top two roses use their white and gold UTEE.

I created a mold using a vintage button to create the polka dot ring.  It too is one of Ansley’s favorites. And look at how perfectly you can fit a rhinestone in the center of the rose embellishment. Seriously, you all are going to want to make these like crazy and you store owners this is the simplest make n take to do. You will have lines of people waiting to make these.

I made this ring  for Ansley’s friend. She also has a matching charm for a necklace.

Her charm is similar to this one but without the rhinestone. This charm is mine. I forgot to get a photo of the other one. Gosh I get so mad at myself when I forget to take a photo of a project.

And here is the ring I created for Ansley. She wanted the rhinestone in the center… like mother like daughter. So ladies and gents get out that Melting Pot, some UTTE, your Mold-n-Pour and start creating. Before you know it you will be looking for things to make unique molds from, from all over your house.

UTEE is a great product and one I have a BLAST playing around with…

  • SOOOO COOL! Love these rose pieces!! Sounds like much fun!! I need another fun “wanna do” like I need an extra head!!! LoL!!

  • I do have to try this – so pretty!

  • Wow those are cool!

  • I learned from Tim’s workshop that the colored UTEEs are discontinued. Why? It is easy to change the color of UTEE in two ways. First using the heat safe dyes in the melt art collection (do not put alcohol inks in any hot melt art!), and with a pinch of any color embossing powder you already have. For more info, check out my blog where I will review many tips and tricks Tim taught at CHA.

  • Awesome Heather… I will certainly check out your blog.
